My guest, Erica Labb, is the Director of Memory Unit. Besides overseeing resident care, she works with the families to understand the many personality and cognitive changes. Erica will discuss her techniques and creative ways to provide the best quality of life for residents. She will also provide insight into how she supports families.

ICERM Radio invites you to its Lecture Program on The Politics of Memory in the Great Lakes;
Featuring René Lemarchand, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of Political Science at the University of Florida.
Date: Wednesday, October 30, 2013 at 4 pm in ET New York.
This lecture will cover Rwanda, Burundi and Eastern Congo, and will try to show how memorial phenomena (memory distorted, thwarted or falsified) continue to raise obstacles to peaceful co-existence in the region. In grappling with memorial issues, Prof. René Lemarchand draws heavily on Ricoeur's insights. His magnum opus on memory is an important contribution.
René Lemarchand is Emeritus Professor of Political Science at the University of Florida. He has written extensively on the history and politics of the Great Lakes region of Central Africa. His book on RWANDA AND BURUNDI (1970), received the Herskovits Award from the African Studies Association. His latest works include THE DYNAMICS OF VIOLENCE IN CENTRAL AFRICA (2009) and an edited volume on FORGOTTEN GENOCIDES: OBLIVION, DENIAL AND MEMORY (2012). He served as regional advisor on governance and democracy with USAID, first in Abidjan (1992-1996) and then in Accra (1996-1998). He served as visiting lecturer at the University of California at Berkeley, Brown University, Smith College, Concordia University (Montreal) and the Universities of Helsinki, Copenhagen, Bordeaux and Antwerp.

It is frustrating for students, and parents, when they spend hours "studying" for a test, only to get a low grade. Successful students have discovered, or been taught, learning strategies and study skills that work in harmony with the brain's natural processes. In this segment, we explore memory strategies, spaced repetition, executive function in the developing brain, and using a planner effectively.
